Betting tips and match preview | La Liga Primera
Barcelona welcome Sevilla to the Camp Nou in a match that sees table toppers Barcelona face 5th placed Sevilla, with Barcelona looking to make it 6 wins from 7 and the visitors Sevilla are looking to recover from their midweek defeat to Molde.
Hosts Barcelona come into this fixture on the back of an excellent week that saw them beat Arsenal 2-0 at the Emirates, courtesy of two Lionel Messi goals and a hard fought 2-1 win against Las Palmas.
They remain in top spot in La Liga and show no signs of relenting with Luis Enrique’s side looking to match last seasons Champions League and La Liga double. They are 8 points clear at the top of La Liga and could go ten points clear if Real were to defeat rivals Atletico in the 3pm kick off on Saturday.
A win against Sevilla would see Barcelona make it five successive wins across all competitions and Luis Enrique will be keen to increase the gap at the top of La Liga to the ten point cushion, this margin would all but guarantee the La Liga title would remain in Catalunya for the second season in succession.
Sevilla Aiming For Champions League
The visitors Sevilla will be looking to recover from the narrow 1-0 defeat at the hands of Molde in the midweek fixture in the Europa League, they were also held to a 2-2 draw in their last La Liga fixture against Rayo Vallecano.
They face a Barcelona side who have been exceptional both this season and last season, it will take a truly special effort to defeat this Barcelona side especially at the Camp Nou. With the forward front line of Messi, Suarez and Neymar it is difficult to see the goals drying up.
They remain eight points behind fourth placed Villarreal and with thirteen games to go the chance of catching them becomes harder with every passing match. They remain underdogs in this contest especially as Barcelona have proven more ruthless against the top sides and given their current position they certainly fall under that bracket.
A win for Sevilla would see them move to within five points of fourth placed Villarreal and having sampled the Champions League this season Sevilla would dearly love to be involved in that competition again next season.
Barcelona head into this fixture with a record of five wins and one draw in their last six league matches. Sevilla have a record of three wins and three draws in their last six matches.
Both teams are 4/6 on to score. The first goalscorer odds for Barcelona are Lionel Messi at 5/2 and Luis Suarez at 3/1. For Sevilla Kevin Gameiro is at 10/1 with Fernando Llorente at 12/1.
The last time these two sides met Sevilla won 2-1 and the odds of the same result are 33/1.
